Fair Isle
From graphic stripes to more complicated double knitting, hats are the perfect canvas to practice and learn new skills. They're pretty small, so you aren't committing to a lifetime of knitting a technique you may not love, and except for some crown shaping, they're basically just knitting a tube — by keeping the structure simple, you're free to focus on your new skill. So when you're in the market to try something new, check out one of these skill-building hats.
